Envious husbands

My husband thinks I have an amazing life because I get to sleep in the afternoon. That’s only because I get up at 6 and also don’t get a restful sleep at night since my son likes to transfer to my bed and then often he has a cough and wakes me up.

Then the other day I told my husband that after I dropped my son off to school for his first full day I went for shopping followed by lunch. He looked at me incredulously as if I had told him that I had bought a Gucci bag and had lunch with Brad Pitt. He just thinks that I shouldn’t be enjoying myself while he’s slaving away in office.

Not that I don’t know what it’s like working in an office. I started working straight out of University and only quit when my son was born. Working in an office is a piece of cake compared to looking after a baby. Life becomes so difficult, it can really be stressful and any mistake you make can affect the life of an individual. The stakes are much higher. And even though you don’t get paid, it’s still more rewarding being a mother.

Now that my son is going to school and has recently started staying an hour longer why shouldn’t I enjoy the time I get to myself. Don’t I deserve it?

How many of you gentlemen are envious of your stay at home wives?
